Ekballo

you must only look to
the dead and the dying
when you are
the dead and the dying

you must only yearn
for dust and dry bones
when you are
dust and dry bones

sand for the parched throat
and sun for the blistering skin
stay out of the water
stay out of the shade

for you are not like you once were
you are other now and we cast you out
